Bob Avakian on Richard Pryor

Recently I was reading reports of police assaults on Black people and of Black people fighting against the police in Memphis and Miami. This called to mind a story I was told a while back. A rookie cop was riding in his police car with his veteran partner when a report came in that there was a Black man in the vicinity with a gun. As their car screeched around the corner, a young Black man suddenly appeared sprinting up an alley--into a dead end. "Shoot him!", the older cop screamed, "Go on, shoot him-- it's free!" "It's free!" Think about that for a second. "It's free!" In other words, here's a chance that gets a pig to sweating and salivating with anticipation--a chance to "kill a nigger" with the already provided cover that a Black man--a Black man, any Black man--was reported in the area with a gun. This is an opportunity too good to pass up: "Go on, shoot him--it's free!" Well, in this case, the rookie was not ready for that--perhaps he was one of those rare ones who joins a police force actually believing the "serve and protect" bullshit--

Call for Submissions (Fiction)

AGITATIONAL PROBABALLISTICS is soliciting short fiction putting unusual spin on current events and political affairs in the genres of science fiction, horror, crime, eclectic short fiction and political suspense thrillers. We especially invite material written from a socialist, anarchist or deep ecological perspective, but we support freedom of thought and will consider submissions from all points of view subject to the following exclusion. No manuscripts will be considered which advocate illegal activity or express racism, sexism, homophobia, gender oppression, body image oppression, age oppression or the glorification of fascist, totalitarian communist or similar oppressive ideologies except as judged to evidence countervailing social redeeming and literary values which, in the sole opinions of the editors, outweigh any violation of the exclusion. That being said, AGIT POL welcomes short fiction which dares to challenge the conventional boundaries of what is customary deemed socially acceptable, and in particular encourages short fiction which integrates evolved social awareness with such shockingly out of the ordinary themes as alternative sexual expression, alternative family arrangements and reproductive strategies, stem cell research, cloning and other cutting edge social issues. In cases where our editorial board is unable to determine with a sufficient plurality that a borderline submission meets our criteria, an author may be invited to submit a defense of their work in writing, authored by either themselves or by any critic, professional or amateur. For more information please email the editorial board with the email address and promotion code posted on this website. Below is a sample from our Eclectic Category.
